Stunning futuristic scenery in a top-notch anime
11 April 2012 | by NGcsSee all my reviews

The Akira (1988) resemblances are inescapable, but this one stands quite well on its own, thanks to the well-made animations. The story and characters are mediocre, but that might just be me, as I'm not exactly a fan of OVAs but I felt like this wasn't rated as high as it should be. What you can expect is the usual over-the-top emotions, loud screams and eyes wide open, but if you can look past that, you will be able to enjoy the beautifully drawn futuristic scenery of Eden. Easily amongst the best recent sci-fi anime films, almost as visually stunning as Marudukku Sukuranburu: Asshuku (2010). Recommended not only for people who enjoy Akira or anime in general, but any open-minded sci-fi buff!
